Barn House

The Barn House was designed as an entertainment pavilion for large gatherings and as a weekend and vacation home. As part of an architecturally unified compound, the client wanted this house to be transitional in style, more traditionally inflected than the main house but incorporating modern elements that speak directly to the other structures.

The double-height great room has two tiers of steel windows and doors that flood the space with light. Materials include hand-hewn oak trusses, a board-formed concrete chimney breast, and black limestone floors. It encompasses a kitchen, dining for fourteen people, a television area, and a billiard table. Downstairs is a cinema and upstairs are a primary bedroom suite and guest accommodations.

The entry stair hall has a black limestone floor and a blackened bronze railing; the front doors are clad in charcoal-stained and wire-brushed mahogany.
In the powder room, a nineteenth-century European water trough serves as a wash basin.
For the wine room, we designed the waxed oak racks to accommodate bottles of various sizes as well as cases.
